Thanks to the 26 volunteers for helping FACT prep the 1-acre field for wildflowers & native grasses. Much thatch was raked off, resulting with some blister and well exercised arms.

Good news for Columbus residents.

As earlier reported, the Bale Kenyon roadway widening project featuring added sidepath between Orange Rd - Powell Rd in Delaware County has faced financing delays but is still in the works, planned to be built in three phases. The future multi-use trail will be part of the entire Alum Creek Greenway Trail corridor - between Three Creeks Park and the Alum Creek Reservoir dam. Thanks to Preservation Parks of Delaware County for further helping expand our trail systems.Two 2022 Community Trail Improvement Grants were recently awarded at the November Preservation Parks board meeting. The CTIG assists Delaware County cities, villages, townships, park districts and non-profits with the acquisition, development and maintenance of multi-use paved trails in Delaware County. This year’s recipients are Liberty Township and Orange Township.

Liberty Township was awarded $24, 075 for the Home Road Gap Trail at Home Road west of Steitz Road for the construction of 180’ of asphalt multi-use trail. This project is on the Home Road trail corridor and is a trail of regional significance. Completing this short gap will benefit students at Indian Springs Elementary and Olentangy Liberty High School, and two nearby large residential neighborhoods.

Orange Township was awarded $40,000 for the Bale Kenyon Bike/Pedestrian Trail at Bale Kenyon Road between Orange and Powell Roads. The funds will support the acquisition of trail easements along the west side of Bale Kenyon Road. This project is along the Alum Creek Greenway, a trail corridor of regional significance. Land acquisition is the critical first step in completing the trail that will eventually connect to residential neighborhoods, McCammon Creek Park, Freedom Trail Elementary School, and Alum Creek State Park.
